Photo Description

The Bogey Hole,  Newcastle NSW.

One of the most popular and unique swimming spots in Newcastle is the heritage listed “Bogey Hole” baths. It’s a purpose-built ocean swimming pool that was dug out by convicts in 1819 for the personal use of Major James Morisset, the first commandant of Newcastle. Some have suggested that it was an enlargement of a naturally occurring rock pool used by local Aboriginal people, but it is not known for sure.

I was wandering around this particular morning looking for a different composition for sunrise and came across a nice vantage point here. The headland above the Bogey Hole was picking up some great light from the sunrise and accenting all the ridges in the cliff side. I thought this photograph helped portray the isolated location of the baths, originally referred to as the ‘Commandant’s Baths’. It’s undergone a few “upgrades” and enlargments over the years but still maintains that natural rock pool look I think.

Product Materials Used

Paper Types Used

Lustre paper - This is like a blend between matt and glossy paper and is one of the highest quality papers within the printing industry. It has a beautiful look to it and the feel of a professional, high quality print.

Metallic paper - Metallic paper adds a unique flair to your photographs. A high contrast "chrome on paper" look, metallic paper adds extreme vibrancy to colours, giving your image greater details and depth.

Canvas Prints

We only use the highest grade, fade resistant HD pigment inks and premium quality 400gsm, museum grade, tight weave Hahnemühle archival canvas. Every canvas print is also coated with a non-cracking UV protective coating.

The canvas is then stretched around an eco friendly, kiln dried wooden frame and finished with professional framers tape and hanging wire.

All canvas prints are also printed at a super high resolution (2880 dpi) using EPSONS ULTRACHROME HDx technology, giving amazing clarity and ultra vivid colours!
